5:33pm
national nonprofit consumer advocacy joins us now to explain what that means thanks for being here. >> nice to be here sean. >> where does your agent ski stand on this change to more generic drugs. >> it means as some of the previous people have just said more people with get the drugs they need instead of having to face not having enough to eat and not having the right medicine. any barrier to getting drugs to the market as quickly as possible is unconscionable when we are talking about budgetgovernment shutting down something it is dumb, penny wise, pound foolish not to give the fda funds they need to hire enough people so these generic trucks can get to the market as quickly as -- drugs can get to the market as quickly as possible when the first drug comes to the market the price drops second and third and fourth are being held up because the fda doesn't have
5:34pm
enough people to process these applications. >> right let me ask you briefly these drugs could sell from 20 to 80% less what the original drugs sell for, what other benefits will consumers see. >> well, the benefits, well, they will be able to afford a drug otherwise as was just said they skipped pills or didn't take the drug at all there is no evidence the fda is constantly checking to make sure what is in the generic drug is the same as the brand name just a matter of not having to pay a bankruptcy causing amount of money, to stay healthy. so it is a great idea and fda needs more funding, not a huge amount, nothing compared with what the government will save, through medicare and medicaid. >> we talked about some of the upsides are there any down sides to this change? >> the down sides may be to the brand name companies, the brand name companies once they get a drug approved assuming it is safe enough and effective enough, they've got a monopoly for a long time there is no
5:35pm
question they will get more monopolies as some of their brand name drugs come off patent i do not have any sympathy or sorry for the brand named companies they will continue doing well maybe better than they should they will engage in enormous price gouging. >> in our report we mention though, one of the down sides may be the funding for experimental or innovative drugs may dry up as well do you see that as a problem? >> i don't these are the kinds of crying in the wind things that we have come to expect from the brand name companies, brand name companies are amongst the most profitable in the country, they can't afford not to do this kind of research hopefully they will do research on new kinds of drugs rather than a 10th or 15th version of cholesterol drug whatever. >> dr. sydney wolf i am sorry we are out of time, but thanks so much for coming in and giving us your perspective. >> nice talking to you sean. in tonight's health alert a
